    FS: Antique Petzval Lens

    I purchased this old petzval portrait lens for use with my digital back but have ended up not using it. It looks great and really cool . Per memory prior owner stated it to be around 150mm focal length and a wide aperture and that it would possibly work on up to 4x5. It is for next owner to find out and verify! Sold as is. However I can state that the glass is very clear, no scratch, no fungus, no haze or other blemish from what I can see, which is remarkable for this old lens. Brass barrel have what I would quantify on basis of its age minor blemishes as per photos, but seem very well kept.

    Asking for 285 USD plus shipping. I will ship insured EMS from Hong Kong and which will cost 35 USD worldwide. It is fast and very secure.

    BUMP!

    Folks, this one should make a Petzval swirl on a medium format camera for digital back. I believe essentially all you need to do is mount it at right focal distance with some duct tape, but perhaps someone can fill in?

    Any interest???

    Regards
